PHOTOSHOP IS JUSTLY FAMOUS FOR ITS ABILITY not only to improve photographs, but also for its power and flexibility in combining photos, graphics, and type into smoothly unified composite art. If you frequently arrange Photoshop layers or selections in your work and want to position them more quickly and yet precisely, this is your chapter.
In this chapter, I talk about positioning layers visually, by dragging them around. If you want to position layers numerically, use the Edit > Free Transform command instead and enter position values into the options bar using the suggestions for entering and editing values precisely (see "Shortcuts for Entering Numbers and Text" in Chapter 3). Of course, if you really want total control over positioning layers as precisely and quickly as possible, get to know both the visual and numeric methods and use whichever one addresses your current situation more efficiently.
